The Urban League of Louisiana’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is committed to providing entrepreneurial support services to women- and minority-owned small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic across the state of Louisiana.

As a small business owner, it is critical to understand how corporations are now pivoting their operations and procurement practices as a result of COVID-19 and the impact these changes will have on those seeking contracting opportunities.
